Reasons to Like Atheists

as a reaction to

The Top Ten

1 They know more about the bible than most Christians

Yes, I read the Bible. I didn't find the book interesting in all honesty but I can say I read it and there's many different and interesting points. But I won't convert to Christianity over it. - EdGeinFan

They know more about the bible and they know that the origins of the bible are mostly ancient greek and Egyptian philosophies. Without Socrates there won't be Plato, without Plato there won't be aristoteles and without Plato and Aristoteles there won't be Plotinus. We all know that this philosophers were the source of the writings and theories of the new testament ( Christianity took of all this philosophies the best to make their own theories and mixed it with supposed words of jesus and some Jewish old testament stories who themselves took their stories of Egypt ).

We are talking about Christians. (so the 2th one)

We talking "Christians" or Christians? - keycha1n

2 They can find joy without belief in god and an afterlife

No Christians believe in afterlife because if there was nothing then its an eternal sleep and unable to do anything. You cannot see, move, talk, whisper, shout, laugh, yell, scream, giggle, hiss, burp, babble, talk in a different language. Hear, smell, breathe, touch, tickle, think, eat, drink, kiss, hug, smile, read, write, draw, paint, use your computer and phone. Don't you think that sounds frightening? So its just enjoy now.

Religious people don't have morals if there morals are from God. They're not morals, they're instructions. - ARandomPerson

If many religious people can't find joy, ethics and morals, a purpose, hope and so on... it's just because they are affraid of life itself. Without god and the belief of an afterlife they think that life is meaningless. Their lives has a meaning with god because without a hope of a afterlife they're lost in this life. They are almost like children who still believes in fairytales with Princesses and magic unexplainable powers.

Good for you. - peashooter

3 They are more tolerant and accepting of others not like them.

Correct - EdGeinFan

I never said that ALL atheists are more tolerant. Some are not (like stalin), but don't forget theistic "nice little boys". For example Philip II of Spain.

This, I will give to you. - keycha1n

Hitler was NOT an atheist; he had forbidden any atheistic movements, and he talks about god in Mein Kampf

4 They use reason
5 They care about reality
6 They don't need faith
7 They do good things because they are good people, not because of an afterlife
8 The smartest people are often atheists

Except for that really smart guy Albert Einstein, who while not adhering to any religious sect, repeatedly said he was not an Atheist, but was perhaps closest to a Pantheist in his beliefs and understandings of the universe and its harmonious existence.

How about the really really smart guy Stephen Hawking (an atheist)

Hm... I wonder what Neil deGrass Tyson would say... - ARandomPerson

9 Most atheists are nice

Like me! If you know me, of course. Otherwise you think of me as a mean old man with a cane. - ARandomPerson

Especially danteem, he was kind enough to send me death threats. - Therandom

I agree!

Some are. I know plenty of nice athiests on ttt - AnonymousChick

10 The majority aren't sexist and/or homophobic

The Contenders

11 They don't think everything is from the devil

What? Atheists don't believe in devils. If you say that they don't think everything is from the devil it's like saying that they don't deny the devil. It's like saying they believe that some things are from the devil and some other things are not. There is nothing that comes from a devil or devils because devils doesn't exist.

Neither do most Christians - peashooter
